African Blackwood And Urushi Drinks Cabinet by Sergej Kirilov
Inspect and stamp. It makes sense to make a stamp of quality with a quality stamp. If your stamp of quality is not of quality what quality is the thing you are stamping? Can a quality stamp of quality improve the quality of what it stamps? There was a time that a stamp of quality stood for quality and then it became a logo and was stuck to everything, inspected or not. But a hallmark, now that is a guarantee. Made to a standard. What a comfort a hallmark is. But who can read them? And isn’t it the first thing a forger is going to fake? Is it not better to learn to judge quality for yourself? True, it takes more time, but it is so much more satisfying in the end.
